Coal River Valley Pinot Noir 2013

Pale Ruby bright red. Red cherry fruit, rose petals, violets and cinnamon with a touch of whole bunch influence. A lovely, fluid,medium bodied textured palate showing red cherry, strawberry and a touch of raspberry. A very delicious and polished Pinot Noir with high scores from all the Pros who tasted it. HH rated this #1 of 110 Pinot Noirs from Tasmania from the 2013 vintage. Obviously an exceptional terroir. Luckily I have one left. — 2 months ago

I’m assuming the Tolpuddle Martyrs landed in Tasmania after being banished from England. Is that the history connection in the name?

You’re probably right Ron. I will check it out.

@Ron R Yes, the Tolpuddle Martyrs were transported from Dorset to Tasmania which was a Penal Colony in 1834.

Single Vineyard Tosq Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

The Nocton Vineyard from Coal River Valley in Tassy just 8 minutes from Tolpuddle Vineyard. Fantastic wine which presents the same logistical nightmare as TPV for us.

The Central Otago TOSQ reveals even larger nightmares as it’s partially fermented before making the journey to a residential winery with tight restrictions on operations.

@Scott Rowe At the recent Pinot Shop Tasting in Launceston I spoke with your viticulturalist at Tolpuddle re the whole logistics of getting grapes from the Coal River to the Adelaide Hills for crushing. He reckoned the chilling in the refrigerated container was a big benefit to the grapes condition.


Tasmania Chardonnay

I echo all the comments made, this is simply cracking. Tasmanian Chardonnay at its best, perhaps Tolpuddle has a rival- so restrained like Winx at the 600m mark in a Cox Plate!! Buy it when you see it, it won't last long — 4 years ago

Kelvedon Estate

Pinot Noir 2012

The 2nd of 2 Tasmanian Pinot Noirs. Dense Ruby in colour - much darker than the Tolpuddle. Rich aromatics of smoky oak and black fruits - Cherry and Plum which carry through to the full bodied palate. Generous flavours. Finishes dry. Incredibly youthful for 8 years of age. One of the bigger bodied Pinots I’ve had for a while. — a year ago

M3 Vineyard Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2012

Quite pale Lemon considering its age. Funky solids musty aromas. Medium bodied medium acid with grapefruit notes on palate and reasonable length. A good Chardonnay from this premium Adelaide Hills producer. From cousins Shaw and Smith - Michael Hill-Smith was Australia’s first Master of Wine. Have spread their wings to Tasmania with the premium Tolpuddle. — 2 years ago

Pinot Noir 2017

Toffee caramel notes showing the oak influence along with bright red cherries and other red fruits. On the palate a nice savoury earthiness - very Tassie. From the Coal River and only 5 klms from the high profile Tolpuddle Vineyard. Tasted again 9 weeks later on 19th February with consistent notes. Aromatic Bright and Fresh. A lot of these Tasmanian producers are boutique small operations who do not distribute overseas and can sell the lot in Australia. — 3 years ago
